I found this project on a blog on the internet. This staircase was all wood before the start of the project. The person decided the stairs needed some sprucing up. Normally, when people carpet stairs they do all of the stairs, rise and run. This person decided they only wanted to do the rise part of the stairs in carpet. The result is genius in my opinion. It adds a lot of interest to the space without being overly done. The pattern is interesting and makes for a beautiful space without taking away from room. This idea definitely added to the room and made it personal.
